I went here excitedly b/c of the reviews, so I was really looking forward to a yummy creative Sunday brunch. Unfortunately I was sorely disappointed. On the upside, they were very accomodating of my 20 minute lateness. After that, the upsides cease. Service was slow, the waitress didn't check on us during our meal, and the food was poor. While it sounded appealing on the menu, the reality was meager and ordinary. I'm so surprised others like the banana stuffed french toast - I'd hardly call it that! It was bread w/ a piece of sweet banana stuff in the middle. I left the entire thing over. But other reviewers had positive things to say, so maybe Five Points is just not for me.

Went here for brunch a few weeks ago, the atmosphere was trendy, but the service was great. We got there around noon and the place hadn't gotten busy yet, however, when we were leaving - about 1 it was pretty packed. The food was good - little twists on tradition brunch favorites. I had their version of eggs benedict. Instead of an english muffin, it ws a chedder biscut - amazing! They used homemade sausage. I wasn't a big fan, but my friend really liked it. It was also on a chopped tomato salsa. This gave it a totally different taste. I really enjoyed it.

To my surprise my brunch here was excellent. I got the banana stuffed french toast and the bacon. Along with a Memosa. The banana french toast was superb! Very tasty. The Memosa was great too. Plenty of champaign. While the atmosphere was trendy and the service was good......the meal stood out the most.

Dinner at Five Points was very good: the food, drinks, atmosphere, crowd and smooth efficient service. It was a pleasant surpise to find a serene and civilized oasis in the city. Next time we will go for the highly recommended brunch!

I had been meaning to go to Five Points for years now, and finally made it with a friend last Friday evening. I don't know why I waited so long. It was a truly enjoyable evening. The place was very busy, and we waiting at a very relaxed bar for only a few minutes. This gave us the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of the dining room from a distance. The service was friendly and efficient, and the dining room had such a sophisticated, rustic elegance to it which made the dining expereince very enjoyable. The room was serene but at the same time had a wonderful buzz to it. The food was superb, very tasty and large portions. I certainly will not wait so long to return to Five Points again.

Brunch is one of the best in the city! Despite other reviews, lunch and dinner are also great. The menu is very creative and the quality high. The restaurant is always comfortable and has good energy.
